Trikes to Trails was born when Bart Gillespie, local professional mountain biker, wanted a program where his young girls could learn to enjoy mountain biking with their peers.
Our program focuses on introducing young kids ages 6 – 11 to mountain biking. It provides professional coaching in the following areas: mountain bike skills, cycling safety, and trail etiquette. Our primary focus is to help kids develop an early love for cycling. #morekidsonbikes
